50th Birthday CakesEasy instructions for making 50th birthday cakes:
Bake a sheet cake the size that you will need for your party.
This was two full sheet cakes put together side by side.
With an icing filled bag and tip, size #5 draw the bottle shape on the cake top. Cut the cake away from the bottle shape.
Make a cream or ivory colored icing. With your cake spatula, ice the cake in the label area and the neck label area.
Add a touch of light yellow in the middle of the labels and smooth and blend it in. Use the cream icing and round tip, size #5 or #7 and outline both labels.
